    USB driver does not start (Win 2000)
    « on: September 19, 2006, 07:28:37 AM »
    Windows 2000 SP4
    When the system starts, it will not start the USB driver (ALi PCI to USB Open Host controller): yellow exclamation mark in configuration-system-hardware.
    A solution is to have the system re-install the driver automatically. That works fine and the connected peripherals (printer and scanner) work OK. But after system switch-off, the problem re-appears.

    I have looked in the services but cannot find anything appropriate.
    Any suggestions?

    Motherboard is MSI MS-5169; CPU is AMD K6-2
    Chipset is van ULi Electronics: ULi/ALi M1541 ALADDIN5 (North: ULi/ALi M1541; South ULi/ALi M1533/1535/1543)

      Have you got Service Pack 2 installed?

      If you haven't, that is most likely your problem. Assuming you are using Windows XP.

        Notice he's running Windows 2000 Pro SP4

        Try booting into SafeMode, go to Device Manager & delete the drivers for the USB device that's coming up the the yellow dot-exclaimation point, then reboot.  Windoze should reinstall the drivers.

        What happens?

        D'oh.

        I wonder how I was able to overlook that..  :-/
         
        Anyhow, what drivers would you be using and what drivers have you tried replacing them with?

          Same thing; it nicely installs the drivers and everything works, but upon re-start the problem is back.

            Original drivers were the ones on the system disc; the replacement drivers came from the manufacturers  website but may have been the same ones ....

            What error code does the yellow exclamanation mark give you?

              No I meant the indication that the device is not active. When you press start- configuration- system- hardware- devices. When you then select properties, it says that the service has not been started.

              With some MBoard's the drivers need to be installed in a certain order...i would re-install the MBoard drivers.

              Is the box that allows the PC to turn off the device to save power tagged?
